Forum: classic_tv Subject: Documenting the contents of a photograph

Speaking of which, I still do film photography. I keep the photos in albums, and write down who is in the photo (full name), and usually also where the photo was taken (I sometimes photograph particular things to help me remember where the photos were taken). I also write down the date (I keep notes of when I took each roll of film...). I even write down the name of the camera used to take the photo. If I photograph a room in the house I live in, I mention which room in the photo album.

BTW, I am seriously convinced that most of my favourite YouTube videos will be lost in 50 years....and don't get me started on how many kinescopes held by TV archives are starting to have acetate deterioration (I've seen this in some shows I have acquired as DVD-R copies from private collectors). The oldest kinescopes are at least 66 years old, television is a much older medium than many people think.
